Orders of Protection and Restraining Orders

Our law firm represents individuals who are parties to actions involving orders of protection under the Family Violence Protection Act and civil restraining orders. As a general rule, we only become involved in these types of cases when criminal charges are filed or anticipated in connection with the same facts that are the subject matter of the order of protection or restraining order. We do not represent individuals in cases involving orders of protection or restraining orders that are solely domestic relations cases.

Victim Representation

  Dan Cron Law Firm, P.C. represents victims of crime and families of victims of crimes when the representation does not create a conflict of interest with existing or potential clients.

What Our Clients Say

I was falsely accused on a death penalty murder charge for the murder of my step-daughter. Thanks to the hard work and out-of-the-box ingenuity of the staff of Dan Cron Law Firm, the charges were dismissed. The firm then spent the next 13 years urging the police to reopen the case. When the case was finally reopened, and with Dan’s expert guidance, the police found and convicted the real killer.

D.C. - Carlsbad

My son was charged with four counts of vehicular homicide that would have put him in prison for the rest of his life if convicted. No other law firm would take the case because it looked so hopeless and my son had already been convicted in the press. Not only did this law firm take on the case, they worked tirelessly to unravel the extremely complicated forensic evidence. After 10 days of trial and jury deliberation, my son was found not guilty on all counts. Dan Cron Law Firm saved my son’s life.
